    Credit to the coaches: RBs

    For about a month of games now, all RBs who have played have been very decisive hitting holes. Prior to that only Warren was doing so. Someone got through to them, whether it was the RB coach, OL coach, OC, or Coach T, but whatever happened it is working.

    This is why you get more respect than others who routinely criticize Tomlin. There IS a legitimate case to be critical. But acknowledging seeing positive when it is there shows an open mind. Just as those of us who tend pro Tomlin need to honestly acknowledge his miscues.

    When both sides can debate without agenda, it is really fun.




    In view of the fact that Mike Tomlin has matched Cowhers record I give him the designation:

    TCFCLTC-
    The Coach Formerly Considered Less Than Cowher

    Thanks...ever notice that positive posts like this go largely unreplied to? I like to complain, sure, but I don't like being miserable. I want to see good things in the team.

    you're a very good poster, we're all frustrated but you're able to keep it real and I respect that.

    Thanks...I used to be a lot more negative about sports in my younger days, perspective on things changes as you age and realize there's enough to complain about in the real world

    Sadly true with the end part. And I think at least economically it will get worse before it gets better

    We finally gain a little perspective.... and then we die.

    you mean a lot
    more negative in the beginning of the season.. lol.

    The bye came at a good time. You came back with a ton of positive energy. Maybe its the schedule lightening up or seeing Kenny trending in the right direction.. whatever it is, its much easier to interact with posters who have balanced takes on the team.
    I lost a bet about Najee gaining 1300 yards.

    "Our head coach has failed to win a playoff game for seven years in a row. His game day strategy, culture of divas, in game decisions, clock management, player evaluation, hires, and affinity with sub par starters at RB, P, and OL are holding the Steelers back. That standard remains the standard"

    Its the negativity bias.

    We’re hardwired be more influenced and react to the negative. This stuff starts in infancy and researchers have measured electrical activity in the brain and it’s significantly higher when people are presented with negative thoughts/threats.

    Bottom line, being happy takes work. But just like everything else, who has the time to consistently put in the work to train yourself to be happy and see the positive and be motivated by the positive?

    And I don’t think online interactions help because the negative gets amplified and people get even more sucked in and never get a break.

    Re: the passing game opening up the run game, that's part of it, but Najee, Snell, and Mac have all had open field/holes in the last two years and danced or tried to break it to the edge. There is a concerted effort to hit the hole hard the last few weeks.
